Meerlust Rubicon 2000 Stellenbosch 75cl / 13.5%
A bottle of Meerlust Rubicon 2000 from Stellenbosch in South Africa.
Nico Myburgh created one of South Africa's original 'Bordeaux blends' working with winemaker Giorgio Dalla Cia after visiting France in the 1970s, having discovered that the terroir in Bordeaux was similar to that of his native Eerste River Valley.
Planted with 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, the name of the brand comes from Julius Caesar's decision to lead his troops towards Roman capital by crossing the Rubicon River in 49BC.
